On the rebound after a devastating break-up, Lisa (Mandy Moore) is ready for adventure while on vacation in Mexico.

All is quiet aboard the spaceship Covenant. The crew and the rest of the 2,000 souls aboard the pioneering vessel are deep in hyper-sleep, leaving the synthetic Walter to walk the corridors alone. The ship is en route to the remote planet Origae-6, where, on the far side of the galaxy, the settlers hope to establish a new outpost for humanity. The tranquility is shattered when a nearby stellar ignition shreds Covenant’s energy-collection sails, resulting in dozens of casualties and throwing the mission off course.

Soon, the surviving crew members discover what appears to be an uncharted paradise, an undisturbed Eden of cloud-capped mountains and immense, soaring trees far closer than Origae-6 and potentially just as viable as a home. What they’ve found, however, is actually a dark and deadly world full of unexpected twists and turns. Facing a terrible threat beyond their imagination, the embattled explorers must attempt a harrowing escape.

What did you think of this film?
KATE BOWMAN (Jocelin Donahue) is a straight-laced, by-the-books social worker who finds herself plunged into a world of supernatural terror while investigating a series of deaths where people died in their sleep. The victims all reported being terrorized by a dark entity that paralyzed and tormented them, before eventually killing them. Kate is joined in this quest by EVAN (Jesse Bradford) an artist who is slow to believe that something supernatural is occurring.

Feeding Evan’s doubt is DR. SYKES (Lori Petty) an expert in sleep disorders. She’s convinced the victims all suffered a common but frightening sleep ailment called sleep paralysis. Dr. Sykes assures Kate and Evan that while sleep paralysis is scary, it’s not dangerous. But soon, Kate is approached by HASSAN DAVIES (Jesse Borrego) an eccentric doctor who was discredited for his unorthodox practices and beliefs. Hassan informs Kate that the evil entity haunting people’s nightmares is very real. Even worse, now that Kate has started studying it, she has opened herself up to the dark entity. Belief is the doorway that lets it find its victims.

Kate tries to brush off Hassan’s dire warning, but she soon finds herself falling victim to the dark entity she’s been investigating. And by talking about it to her family and friends, she’s caused them to start to believe.

As the terrifying entity stalks Kate’s friends and loved ones, she realizes that she’s brought death to the people around her. Now, she and Evan must fight to stay awake and get to the truth, in order to stop the nightmare she’s unleashed from claiming them all.

What did you think of this film?
A deeply atmospheric and terrifying new horror film, The Blackcoat’s Daughter centers on Kat (Kiernan Shipka) and Rose (Lucy Boynton), two girls who are left alone at their prep school Bramford over winter break when their parents mysteriously fail to pick them up. While the girls experience increasingly strange and creepy occurrences at the isolated school, we cross cut to another story—that of Joan (Emma Roberts), a troubled young woman on the road, who, for unknown reasons, is determined to get to Bramford as fast as she can. As Joan gets closer to the school, Kat becomes plagued by progressively intense and horrifying visions, with Rose doing her best to help her new friend as she slips further and further into the grasp of an unseen evil force. The movie suspensefully builds to the moment when the two stories will finally intersect, setting the stage for a shocking and unforgettable climax.
